8-year-old Shorewood girl spends birthday party giving back

SHOREWOOD (WITI) -- North Shore firefighters helped make a Shorewood girl's birthday extra special. They showed up at her birthday party Saturday afternoon, March 21st.

It turns out, birthday girl Aubrey, who turned 8, was the one that was giving them gifts!

The department says instead of asking for gifts for herself, Aubrey wanted her friends to bring stuffed animals. Those stuffed animals would then be donated to the department's ambulances -- to be handed out when they care for a sick or injured child.

Talk about a great birthday!
